Applies to TestComplete 14.30, last modified on November 21, 2019

Using TestComplete, you can generate test data and store it to TestComplete variables or Excel files. This approach can be very useful if you want to store test data in an external file, then retrieve this data using TestComplete and use it in your tests. In this case, you do not have to change your test’s commands every time you want to add new values to run the test with.

So, you can generate these values and specify the data type that will be used for them. Each data type contains a list of parameters that help you specify the values to be generated.

Note: Along with the standard generators mentioned below, TestComplete allows creating user-defined generators and adding these generators to the list of predefined generators. For more information, see Working With User-Defined Data Generators.
